The project included the demolition of an existing Community Centre, together with site clearance and major service divisions. The site is extremely small and located on a major road junction, surrounded on other sides by existing properties.

The leisure centre comprises a 25m 10 lane pool, 4 court sports hall, 100 station gym, 2 squash courts together with studios, reception areas and cafes etc. The brief included that the existing Dagenham pool had to be kept apart until the new centre is open.
